I’m thankful for public servants like Tony Snowâ€”so much so that I have written about him more than once on this blog (see here). Last week, he announced that he would resign as President Bush’s press secretary.
Many people will remember that he is a cancer survivor. Unfortunately his cancer has returned. Snow wrote a short piece for Christianity Today describing his decision to step down, and he also shared some of his reflections on having cancer. You should read the whole essay, but one line stuck out to me:
“We want lives of simple, predictable easeâ€”smooth, even trails as far as the eye can seeâ€”but God likes to go off-road.”
